The sound of gravel under my wheels is a daily occurrence for me. I imagine the hum of pavement is all many hear from the moment they leave their house in the morning until they get home at the end of the day.
When you drive on a country road a few things happen. You are required to slow down the hidden imperfections of the uneven surfaces require you to look ahead…and look around. Driving too fast means you are kicking up too much dust and that isn’t the neighborly thing to do.
Old stone walls built by farmers are common along dirt roads. These were not put up to keep the animals in or the neighbors out…they were a bi-product of tilling the fields. Then stack stone along property boarders to make use of the discarded nuisance in growing a crop.
Forest brooks were allowed to meander where they wanted to go. They took the path of least resistance and the old timers constructed homes away from them.
When you are not in too much of a hurry, take a trip down a dirt road and enjoy the scenery – you’ll get where you’re going all in good time. A shady lane in the summer is just the right thing to slow down your pace.
I have 18.83 acres for sale on this shady lane, it needs a small bridge to get over the brook but it's price very affordable at $99,900 ( about $5,300/ acre). Ready to enjoy a slower pace of life off a shady gravel road?
